Athens (CNN) – Relax. The Greeks have it sorted and the euro will live to fight another day.
With just hours to go before we know if George Papandreou will survive as Greek prime minister, it's becoming likely deals are being hashed out behind the scenes amongst parliamentarians, the government and the opposition party.
What's not clear is if he will survive the confidence vote, but I don't
think it matters. Some sort of government will be cobbled together and it will have to push the latest austerity package through the parliament in the coming weeks. Greece has no choice.
People I have talked on the streets tell me they want the euro. The younger the person the more adamant they are - they say they deserve to be in the euro and this debacle is the fault of the politicians.
The Greek people aren't "lazy" one woman asked me to pass on to viewers. But what is also clear is that Athenians feel humiliated about all that has happened over the past 18 months.
So, now, vote for him or vote against him, it appears the Papandreou
government is on its last legs. Surely, the same is not the case for Greece
and the euro.
